My English sucks
I don't have a website
I don't sell signals
I don't use indicators
I am not a good "trading teacher".
Live trading since 2000
I use the same trading methods for 13 years.
I don't want to prove nothing.

I do this because sometime I'm bored.
FOR FUN I like to try new trading systems.Very interesting to see the market trough somebody else mind. There are many smart people on this forum.
Fell free to post anything you like.

I'm still short with 22 contracts from 28.760.
26.000 it's a very important support.
If the price will go throw... me too.
Must wait...

Don't have to much free time to update this journal.
Closed @22.050 (my TP was hit)

What's my winning ratio?
Less than 50%.(something like: 2 loosing trades-1winning trade)

Why I don't post my loosing trades?
I don't even have time to take a snapshot of the screen.
I exit soon I see I was wrong (10-30ticks)

Not sure if I'll have time to update this journal whit all my trades.
Time to relax

I feel good and calm.
I'll let profits run.

Hypnotherapy is my hobby.

Relaxation is a mental process. You can begin by closing your eyes, but it helps to have something physical with which to work. Just wiggle your shoulders a little bit. That can give you a comfortable feeling of relaxation. Move that feeling of comfortable relaxation into your upper arms, through your elbows into your forearms, wrists, and hands, so that you have a comfortable, relaxed feeling from your right hand, up your right arm, through your shoulders to your left arm and left hand. Move the feeling of comfortable relaxation from your shoulders into your chest, stomach, hips and upper legs, through your knees, into your lower legs, ankles and feet. Bring the feeling of comfortable relaxation from your shoulders into your neck and let it move into your head, until it fills your entire head with a comfortable, relaxed feeling. Take a deep breath and, as you breathe out, relax very deeply.
Just imagine you are on the fifth floor of a very lovely building. This building has the interesting property that permits you to double your relaxation each time you descend to a lower floor. There are three ways of descending for you to choose from. There is a lovely elevator with very comfortable chairs to support you comfortably. There is an escalator, which has a comfortable chair for you to sit on as it goes down from floor to floor. There is a wide, carpeted stairway, that is brightly lit with lovely pictures on the walls. Through the windows you can see a lovely day outside.
As we descend, enjoy the increase in feelings of comfort and relaxation, which you can double with each successive floor. Now, we reach the fourth floor and continue down, reaching the third floor, and continue down as the relaxation intensifies, reaching the second floor, with relaxation deepening even more, and continue to the first floor.
You leave the building and enter an absolutely wonderful place, which is wherever you want it to be, and which you can change whenever you wish. In it are the things, and only the things you want, and you can change these also, as you wish. With you are the people, and only the people, you want, and you can change them any time you choose, and you can even be by yourself, if you like.
Enjoy your special place, in a safe and lovely manner. This is your refuge, and now that you know where it is and how to get there, you can return to it any time you need to or want to.
When you wake up, you can feel refreshed and very good, and when I count to three, you can wake up, feeling terrific, because you are. One . . . two . . . three.

last trade Gold
The only way to enter this short was to anticipate the trade(4000 contracts in few seconds).Risky I know but it is all about risk.
let's see...
